Casey's - more than just a hardware store

image preview

Casey’s Expert Hardware & Furniture Store Charlestown is more than just a hardware store. This family-run store is now amazingly in its 89th year in business, having first opened its doors way back in 1932. The business has expanded enormously over that time period.

Mayo wakes up to sadness as we lose another hero

Here in Mayo, we quake at the death of a garda, because we have known so much tragedy on that front. All good people, all dedicated to putting themselves at risk so that the lives of the general public can be protected. All great men who would have gone on to contribute so much to the communities that loved them.

A summer to remember from 25 years ago

image preview

"It was just fun to be with them and they were great lads and you couldn't ask any more" - is how 25 years on Martin Carney remembers the Mayo u21 team of 1995, that were beaten by Kerry in an All Ireland final replay that summer.

Christmas at Caprice

image preview

Caprice has been a favourite with Galwegians and visitors since its opening a couple of years back. The first thing you notice about Caprice is that the interior looks like a Pinterest board dream, all calm colours and twinkling lights. It is clear that a great deal of thought has gone into this design. Located at the corner of Church Lane and Market Street, Caprice has added to this area of town. It is a bit off the beaten path, but that does not seem to put many people off visiting. A good menu often trumps an out of the way address.

Our Lady’s Boys’ Club camp

image preview

When President Michael D Higgins, officially opened the new Our Lady’s Boys’ Club clubhouse in 2015, he said: “Like so many successful community initiatives, OLBC was founded and built on vision, a spirit of participation and a will to make a genuine and positive difference to the community. When Fr Leonard Shiel SJ established a club in 1940, I doubt that he realised just how enduring his vision would be. Today, OLBC is the longest running youth club in the country and has woven its way into the fabric of community life in Galway, welcoming members from many neighbourhoods including Shantalla, Westside, Ballinfoyle, Rahoon, Corrib Park, and Newcastle.

Take time to recall the Mayo stars of the past

Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in! I could apply that quote to the Mayo Advertiser asking me to return for a one-off All-Ireland final article or to Mayo football itself. Either way, I am delighted to be in this position in mid-September. As ardent football fans we have been deservedly rewarded in this county. Supporters have fed off our team’s energy and vice versa. That relationship is an essential component for a successful season so do what you can to make it to Dublin this weekend and bring the colour, bring the noise. When the 66-year drought ends this Sunday and the pent-up euphoria is unleashed with little hope of abating, my one concern is that the names of the men who built a football-loving county and laid the foundations for thousands of fanatics and players may be lost in the many celebratory renditions of The Green and Red of Mayo.
